LONDON - Men in Britain are stronger supporters of gender equality than women themselves, with 86 percent believing women in their lives should have the same opportunities as they do, compared to 81 percent of women who think so, a survey showed on Monday.

Although seven out of 10 men believe a more equal society would be better for the economy, only 39 percent think they would personally benefit if men and women in Britain were equal, the survey by women's rights charity the Fawcett Society, said.

Seven percent of men think they would lose out if society was more equal.
